The Mission RS production bike.

The highest specification electric race bike to date, the Mission R can compete in the new TTXGP alternative energy race classes at various venues around the world where this new watercooled electric Superbike should easily dominate. It probably would be very competitive in club level Superbike races where it might also be allowed to compete.

Mission Motor controllerThe Mission R bristles with MissionEVT innovations. Energy and power dense MissionEVT battery modules put more energy into a smaller space. This gives the Mission R the ability to turn lap after high speed lap for most race distances.The AC Induction motor produces 115ft lbs of torque and 141 HP, rocketing the bike from a standstill to over 160mph,all in one gear. Power is managed by the MissionEVT 100kW motor controller, with customizable regenerative braking maps, throttle maps and traction control enabling a new level of vehicle control.

Optimized for the race track, the Mission R features even more energy on board in their all-new race specific pac, and a hot swappable pack architecture. Mission's advances in chassis tuning, throttle mapping and traction control maps for electric motorcycles all come with an obsession for lower track times. Mission has not yet formulated any racing plans with the R for the 2011 season. No doubt major sponsorship support would be instrumental in helping Mission Motors to formulate a serious racing program. In the meantime, you can race your own Mission R for an announced price of $70,000. For additional details go to RideMission.com
